He is attentive and helpful, pointing us in the direction of the most amazing adventure. The experiences were incredible, and the equipment was perfection, brand new, fast, powerful, fun and easy to use. This was a GREAT family adventure! It would also be a fantastic team building, vacation or special occasion activity. Or just go for fun!! An unforgettable, fast and fun way to experience the California coast. Highly recommend!!!

My dad and I had a great time renting a slingshot and doing the Ragged Point self tour. The owner was awesome, helpful and very generous. The equipment was well maintained and it performed very well. This is currently the only place in town where you can rent a Polaris Slingshot so reserve yours now before they’re all booked up!

Wonderful experience! Even though I have lived in CA for 42 years, I had never visited Paso Robles – so this was a fantastic way to see all the local beauty. The guided tours are a perfect balance or relaxation and thrills. Kudos to the owner for his thoughtful planning. We started out in gorgeous wine country and cruised all the way to the coast. There are so many hidden gems on these scenic tours – even for those who might already know the area. The slingshots are very well maintained, super sporty, and fun to drive. Expect to turn a few heads as you explore the area. I recommend blocking out a full day!

Jon steered us to a beautiful drive through the valley to a hidden treasure, Parkfield Café.  The boys loved crossing over the ‘San Andreas Fault line’ and I loved the curves and surprises the valleys of the central coast offered.
